ABS light
« on: 10 October 2020, 07:31:22 pm »
Has anyone EPA’s had thwarted ABS light come on about 30 mins in to riding, then turn the bike off, restart and it’s fine?


Happened to me on the last two days of commuting just wondering if anyone else has had and fixed the issue?


Thanks

Might seem daft but check your tyre pressures. If the tyre pressures are far enough adfrift, once hte tyres warm up they get bigger and result in turning the wheel more than before resulting in a greater % difference between the wheels making the light come on.

Sounds daft but was exaclty the probelm my brother (and others) had on mercedes cars where people fit slightly different (cheaper) size tyres on different axels.
Another ex-Fazer rider that is a foccer again

Thanks for the reply, I check them weekly but will give them a quick check before riding to work this evening and see if it works....


Thanks
